The way it works


Hey people,i trust you had a very wonderful weekend? I had a blast,considering the fact that i lazed most of the weekend away.However,i did go to an acquaintance's wedding.You can imagine the appreciation i saw on his face when he saw me,he definitely wasn't expecting me.Another thing that happened was me being upset over the news of a common (ok,not so common) thief who stole billions of naira and was given bail for N750,000 (seven hundred and fifty thousand naira).I mean,WTFF?! (pardon the vulgarity,but you might still see some as you proceed though).I also read about a story where a man who stole a blackberry phone was given 3 years sentence,so you can imagine why i went into the state of utmost disgust and anger.I really don't want to talk about our politicians because it turns out that that's the fastest way to get me worked up.I'm tired of the news in Nigeria actually,they're full of heart-wrenching stories and i just can't deal! So,before i start getting all worked up,let me jejely got to the main post.

Newton's third law of motion (for those that did physics) states that ; for every action,there's an equal and opposite reaction.Now,what i have come to realize is that physics is directly applicable to life.For those of you who are familiar with psychology,you'd agree with me that you can get a particular reaction out of a subject/person.For instance,if you want to make someone very happy,you can do that through words or actions.Also,if you want to upset them,you can achieve that through words or actions.Sometimes,what you even consider inaction is indeed action and can bring about a certain reaction.Now let me dabble into a few illustrations to further buttress my point.Last year,the government decided that they wanted to remove fuel subsidy and the reaction to that was a strike.You can even make someone do something he doesn't want to do without him realizing it,this is possible through what is called 'Reverse psychology'.

The reason i decided to bring up actions and reactions is that we tend to bring certain woes upon ourselves with our actions.We take lots of things for-grated and end up being hurt in one way or another.For instance,some women will argue that the way they dress shouldn't make men act or react a certain way towards them.Or some people will argue that the way you talk shouldn't determine how people act towards you.But these are all misleading impressions,it's not how the human mind works.The mind works in line with words and actions.Your actions will determine how people act towards you,your words also will determine how people act towards you.Consider this scenarios; As a lady,you go to a guy's house,dressed in clothes that are very revealing.You take alcohol and do and say suggestive things (touching him and talking about sex) and yet you wonder why he made a move on you.Like seriously?! As a guy,you hang around petty criminals,you smoke skunk and drink and you wonder why you were arrested along with the guys.I mean,common!!! Let's go to the work place now.You go late to work somewhat regularly and sometimes rush back home and yet you wonder why you were not chosen for promotion or as employee of the year.You're definitely a joker! Hey,how about you who always complain when you're with your friends,why are you wondering why your friends don't want to hang out with you? The way it is is prolly different from the way you think it is.Actions generate reactions so you should be very careful how you act.As you start this week,always consider your actions so you don't end up hurting yourself and blaming it on others.Have a very pleasant week and month ahead.

  3. Action speaks louder than words they say, and dress the way you want to be addressed! Show me your friends and I would tell you, whom you are.........and yet we humans complain of some issues???? many atimes we are the cause of our own troubles!!

    Yes, every action begat a reaction!
